There’s something about that aroma of the Middle Eastern spices sizzling over hot charcoals, that makes lamb kofta kebab a true favourite. This lamb kofta kebab recipe lets you create the perfect version at home, and is best served with Middle Eastern carrots, cabbage and mint salad, warm pita bread or hot rice.
Kofta comes from the Persian word kufteh, which means "mashed". Before the use of food processors, meats were literally mashed with a large mortar and pestle and added into different dishes.
As such, lamb kofta is a classic dish made of oval-shaped or rounded patties of seasoned ground lamb, mixed with tahini sauce and typically served inside a warm pita. It’s also equally good with minced chicken and yoghurt.
Tip: Ask your butcher to mince some lamb shoulder for you. It’s the best cut for kofta that you can purchase.
